    Together with Branson, Obama enjoyed kitesurfing on one of the islands that belong to the famous magnate. On February 7, the Virgin Group founder even published a cool video of him and Barack competing on the boards.

    A few photos of the 44th POTUS jamming out created typhoon of mixed reaction. Some suggested that Obama lives somewhere in an alternative world.

    "Like he wasn't on vacation half the time he was in office," wrote user Leftist Cuck on Twitter.

    "Barack Obama is out here enjoying life and I'm feeling like a jealous EX," said the post of KevOnStage on Facebook.

    However, not all Internet users were moaning; some were sincerely happy for Obama to finally get the time off he earned.

    ​"Glad you're having fun, but please come back. We need you. So we don't… die or anything," wrote snoeflakeginger.
